Fortunately, teaching practices help shape the learning experiences and increase motivation and achievement for students. In addition, it has been revealed that when teachers collaborate well together they also tend to work better with students. This new informative publication clearly identifies and arranges profiles in relation to two connected areas of professional teacher practices: classroom teaching practices and participation in professional learning communities.

This practical book enables a more comprehensive understanding of teaching practice and participation in professional learning communities nationally and internationally. It provides policy makers and other key stakeholders with the relevant information they need for educational system monitoring.


Analysing Teachers' Professional Practices with TALIS Data

Chapter 3 details the factors that this report studied. Drawing on socioconstructivist approaches to teaching practices and professional learning communities, discussed in Chapter 2, questions drawn from the TALIS 2008 teacher and school questionnaires were chosen for further analyses. The main themes covered by TALIS 2008: the teachers’ professional development, the type of appraisal and feedback they receive, their activities and attitudes, and schools’ leadership and management styles. The aim was to characterise the underlying profiles of teaching practices and participation in learning communities in each of the 23 countries that participated in TALIS 2008. For this purpose, multilevel latent profile analysis was applied.
